DENS Furniture Warehouse is located at: The Hub, Paradise Depot, Paradise, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, HP2 4TF
The Senior Management Team and Trustees have taken time to look into the future of the Warehouse and after careful consideration, have taken the decision to close the retail element of the Warehouse as it is no longer financially viable. The last day the Warehouse will be open to the public is Friday 29th March (Tuesday-Friday).
Our resources are more effectively utilised focusing on supplying starter packs, and providing furniture and household goods, for clients who are moving on from our hostel into other forms of longer-term accommodation.

A year and a half ago I was the Sales Manager of a large company, living with my partner and son in a very nice house, enjoying a happy home life. I lost my job due to cuts - I wasn't bothered, I'd never been unemployed and thought I'd just get another job.
